Fun Fact Monday?- Super Bowl, “I’m Going to Disney World!”

I originally shared this fact as a “Fun Fact Friday” a back in 2015, but I think it’s a cool tidbit to reshare 🙂

You’ve all heard it

Question- ” (insert name), you just won the Super Bowl, What are you going to do next?”

Answer- “I’m going to Disney World”

Ever wonder where that started???  The first football player to answer that question was Phil Simms in 1987.  Simms played for the New York Giants, and was the 1987 Super Bowl MVP.

For doing the commercial spot Simms was paid $50,000 and Disney foot the bill for his family and him to travel to their parks.

This year is the 31st year, and congrats to Nick Foles from the Philadelphia Eagles on being the Super Bowl MVP!

Fun Fact Friday- Trader Sam

Who is Trader Sam?

Trader Sam is the “Head Salesman” located at the end of the Jungle Cruise.  When they say Head Salesman, they’re not meaning one who is in charge of other salesmen and women… they literally mean the one who sells heads (of the shrunken variety). The Jungle Cruise one of the original rides at both Disneyland and Disney World.

Depending on which Disney park you most often frequent Trader Sam may look a little different.  Below are photos of the two different Trader Sams.

Why would I bring up who Trader Sam is?  I bring it up because of the recent opening of “Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto” at the Polynesian Village resort.  This bar (which also serves appetizers) is based off of the storyline of Trader Sam from the Jungle Cruise.  With the opening of the Grog Grotto, you can now visit Trader Sam’s both at Disneyland (Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar at the Disneyland Hotel) and at Walt Disney World.

In 2012 when I was at Disneyland we visited Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar for beverages and a snack and we fell in LOVE with it!  I was very excited to find out that WDW was adding their own version of Trader Sams, and I can hardly wait to visit!  If it’s anything like the one at Disneyland, I know it will be incredible!  The theming is outstanding, and I love it when they use a tie in from the parks into their resorts!
